Naomi Florsheim, an eighth-grader at Issaquah Middle School, won first place.
Teachers Christine Boas, from Skyline High School, and Henry Level, from Liberty High School, served as judges. They determined the first-, second- and third-place winners, who received gift cards for the Issaquah Coffee Co.
About 15 middle and high school students from Issaquah attended and participated, bringing their poetry to life.
